    Wow... did I get lucky!

    Super nice deal!! This was my configuration. Your windshield/pano roof alignment looks nearly identical to MME I walked from. In hindsight, probably should've accepted and had service/sales write the defects in a "Due Bill" form required in CA. My car was built 1/30. Your Ford dealer is a...

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Super! That's really good to hear. Yes, I will be working with my dealer on ordering my *exact* same configuration again. I have faith that any issue we have (if any) will be satisfactorily addressed. We've already made significant electrical upgrades to our home including 2, new NEMA 14-50...

    Car Seats Installed - Front and Rear Facing

    This is great news for families! I hated moving my seat forward to accommodate a rear-facing seat in my old Mazda 6! Don't forget to always use the top tether anchor on forward-facing seats. I'm betting Ford made it easy to locate in the MME. It's labeled like a ship's anchor.

    Panoramic roof - Windshield misaligned!

    Good! I reached out to Ford via a tagged tweet to the Mustang Team. Looks like they heard my QA gripe and Dearborn quickly contacted my dealer. I love my config and don't really want the GT's all-black interior. I'm going to see if one can be found locally or just reorder with a...

    Panoramic roof - Windshield misaligned!

    Anything new to report? Did your dealer or Dearborn finally get you a resolution?

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Ok... So I heard from the fleet dept. at Ken Grody Ford, and they will make this situation right for me! Dearborn was made completely aware of my concerns! Dealer can reorder the same configuration for me and Ford may "prioritize" the build date. Or, I can wait much longer and reserve a GT...

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Well... Sadly, it's too late! The dealer (Ken Grody) sold my special order MME without offering to work with Ford Corp. on offering solutions for these issues. To be fair, I plainly said that I didn't want the car with these QA concerns but he did not offer anything in writing whatsoever or...

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Wait... I still love this vehicle! I believe in Ford... My wife and I are now practically in agreement to place a brand new reservation for a RR GT with an ALL-STEEL roof -- not even moonroof option hopefully! I don't want to move on... Just want 100% quality!

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Hi all. I just got off the phone with our MME's *dedicated* phone assistance line! I called 833-385-0523 and spoke to absolutely no one for 15 straight minutes! :mad: There was no option to leave a callback number for a rep to call you later. I think 15 min on hold is pretty reasonable with...

    Minor installation or transport damage damage on the seal.

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    I will call the dedicated MME phone number and escalate this issue on Monday. They will get an earful from me! WTH are they allowing all these "QA-Passed" vehicles to leave the plant? Why should we all have malaligned structural glass roofs? Uhggg. Honestly, if Ford builds and promises me a...

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    The cool fleet mgr I was dealing with at Ken Grody Ford was on vacation this week so I was nicely passed to a "Mach-E Team" junior salesman. Friendly new guy was off a couple days... so I made an appt for Sat. My family was on spring break when the MME arrived about a week ago! Pick-up...

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Can any Ford assemblyworker effectively shut or slow the line down and stop production for any major flaws? Some automakers embrace this practice.

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    I would've *totally* accepted delivery 100% with the screen buzz (annoying though) and other minor goofs but not with a misaligned glass roof. It was fully flush with windshield on driver's side for about 18" then went up to about 3/8-5/16" toward passenger side. What is the spec on this part...

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Maybe I am being too picky, but for a car north of $50k, I expected far better build quality. I have only owned Toyotas and Mazdas in my life and while no car is perfect from the factory, serious quality gaffes are unacceptable. Uggggg. Is it too hard to have an even, forward roof line and...

    Rejected My Premium ER AWD - QA Issues

    Hi all. Very sadly I had to reject delivery of my beautiful Rapid Red ER AWD Premium MME yesterday at our dealer - Ken Grody Ford, Orange County. I reserved around New Year's 2020 and converted to order in June 2020. My family was really, really excited to get her this week! We are...

    Range concern

    Looks like max range is highest in city driving -- especially in 25-50 MPH zones. This is ideal for congested highway & city travel. Ha, great for So. Cal! Honestly, greater than 95% of us drive under 75 miles to work or school roundtrip. Large majority of BEV drivers will then charge at...

    Plug & Charge Fail and the 80% Cliff is Real

    The big, big question of the day is... Why aren't major, membership-only stores (e.g., Costco) with huge gasoline/diesel stations throughout the country offering discounted (or any) DCFC yet for EVs? Costco has many, many shoppers w/EVs that spend about 60+ min inside. Where's the juice, man?

    Preparing for Mach-E charging at home - preparation and installing charger

    Concur! Since the breaker box is installed in an accessible, exposed ground area, 110V/220V unprotected wire bundle absolutely should be inside rigid conduit pipe like EMT! It's also needs to be clamped to wall. Better to be safe and permitted by your local building authority.

    I just received my Mach-E First Edition (in California)!

    So Cal... No "build date" yet in system but dealer has 2/28 for my Premium delivery. I have a 1/17 production week date. I'd like to have a temp. spare tire/jack option for frunk or rear storage instead of all that added plastic junk weight... My 2 cents. Our So Cal roads are filled w/tire...
